Event: 50 years of Russian history in posters, from Tsars to Dictators (1890-1940)
AntikBar will be presenting at the “50 years of Russian history in posters, from Tsars to Dictators” evening on Thursday 11th July from 18:00-19:30 at the Gallery for Russian Arts and Design (GRAD) in London. This event is part of the “See USSR” exhibition being held at GRAD until 31st August.
The turbulent years of Russia’s history from 1890 to 1940 had a profound impact on all aspects of Russian life. Drama, trauma, war and political upheavals were very graphically reflected in the mass media of the period: posters. Created to grab the attention of passers-by, posters are very topical and often absorb and reflect changes in society, art styles and fashions. Join us for a visual journey through 50 years of Russian history as told by poster art.
